Livestock Health Benefits:
Livestock that are kept in limited factory farms have less quality life compared to those raised on pasture. Livestock when raised on pasture can move around and live an organic life where else in factory farms the livestock are all crowded in confined facilities. These facilities do not have sunshine or fresh air allowing bacteria to grow and affect the animals. This then causes the animals being provided with antibiotics which is not great for the livestock.
Since a lot of livestock eat grass, grazing them on pasture has a number of benefits. Some of the benefits would be the livestock are able to produce saliva which is good for neutralizing acids that is in their gastrointestinal system. As grain fed livestock produce less saliva they frequently suffer from dehydration, intestine harm and even death.
